it is mostly good news for president obama. unemployment ticked up to 7.9%, but more jobs were added than expected, 171,000 to be precise. stock futures went up right after the numbers came out. later oil prices took a tumble. both the president and governor romney reacted to the report during stops on the campaign trail this morning. >> we made real progress, but we are here today because we know we've got more work to do. >> unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. >> and joining any now is "newsweek" columnist zachary caribel. let's get your analysis of the numbers. >> unemployment ticked up, but statistically it's a nonfactor. it's been where it is now for the past six, seven, eight months. it doesn't matter who is elected on tuesday. that's likely where we are. it's the only more than silver lining is you have moderate job creation. i think no one would prefer having less than 171,000 jobs created in a month. that's where we are right now. >> the anticipation was 125,000 job woos would be added. it's so intriguing the dynamics playing out in the
. >> this is a very tough day to be the challenger in a position where you can't do anything about it. right? so romney has to show sympathy and really nothing he can do in this situation. president obama gets all the advantages of incumbency and seeing the pictures coming in out there with chris christie. a top romney surrogate and a moment to look presidential. look like he's in charge. he's doing all of those things. the question is whether the mood will change when people have not had power for a few days, images of areas that are still suffering and the cleanup has not been as effective. what will that do in the final hours before election day? nobody knows how that plays out. >> no one knows but what we know, rachel, all of those factors can happen but what you have over the last few days, that shot. one of the chief surrogates for governor romney patting the president on the back, physically and then patting him verbally for a last few days. he's been doing that. by the way, there was some information reportedly one of mitt romney's advisers on the plane was asked whether that governor ro
. this is a deadly storm and damage estimates are right now up to $20 billion and could rise. nearly 8 million people from the carolinas to ohio, 8 million without power. president obama held a conference call with governors and mayors in affected area after declaring several states federal disaster areas. the president canceled all campaign events for the third day. within the past few minutes we got word that the president's travel pool was told to gather at white house, which means the president is going to do something. however, we do not know what that is yet. according to our nbc news team at the white house. and governor romney also canceled rallying today, but he did attend an event in ohio. his campaign describes it as a storm relief event. >> i've had the chance to speak with some of the governors in the affected areas, and they've talked about a lot of people having hard times. i appreciate the fact that people aat dayton got up this morning and went to the grocery store and purchased things these families will need. i appreciate your generosity. >> while calling president obama's response
their voters out, especially with early voting going on. we see right now a big pause on the campaign and president obama more in the spotlight with mitt romney taking a back seat because president obama is in charge of the government. that's just the way it is. >> that is the way it is, but that did not stop at least some campaigning going on for the governor. as i mentioned, you have this eef event with paul ryan and bill clinton in florida. he was supposed to be in florida with the president. let me play what former president clinton had to say. >> i was supposed to be the warm-up man for president obama today, but that storm on the east coast had other ideas. >> but obviously the show does go on in some capacity, but talk me quickly about the perils for both of them. obviously, the president is the president. this is his responsibility, to have the concern of the american people on the forefront. what does governor romney do or say, other than this point that he's trying to be sense and pull off the campaign trail tomorrow and not today? >> it's no accident that bill clinton was i
bailout, the auto industry. how many times we heard on the campaign trail from obama and others saying gm is roaring back. and i thought, wow, it all goes back to ohio and that auto bailout which was unpopular at the time, and now here we are. >> right. so one of the big questions is will mitt romney kind of blur the lines on the auto bailout sufficiently to gain a little ground in ohio? because that is a huge issue in that state. and arguably, we could be saying wednesday that that issue won the state for president obama and that it won reelection for president obama. >> do you think we're talking too much about ohio? listen, you've got the romney campaign saying they're looking at pennsylvania, minnesota, that they perhaps have some traction there. and we know the new numbers in florida. we'll talk with marc about that throe show at least a difference in polls from the nbc marist poll and local polls show romney is up more than we're indicating. >> first of all, i think both sides genuinely think they're going to win or certainly think they have a great chance of winning. that said, pen
